I am a fourth year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Cornell.

I am advised by Professor Lorenzo Alvisi as a member of the Theory Meets Practice group. My research interests are in building fault-tolerant, scalable, geo-replicated distributed systems.

As an undergraduate student at the University of Southern California, I was lucky to be advised by Professor Wyatt Lloyd as a member of the Networked Systems Laboratory.
